Cheated wife 'resprays' hubby's BMW

Then flogs it on internet

Top three mobile application threats

As the olding saying goes: "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," and the owner of a BMW M3 Coupe currently for sale on Ireland's Car Buyers' Guide know this better than anyone:

That BMW M3 coupe with exciting new paint job

Crikey. As the blurb rather splendidly declares, this car has "some cosmetic damage due to having a cheating husband. Best offer secures. Idiot put car in my name".

The current going rate for a 2005 M3 is, according to Car Buyers' Guide, around €45k, so this is a bit of a bargain - even if the vehicle's going to need a bit of TLC in the valeting department. ®

Bootnote

Thanks to all those readers who have emailed to express their suspicions about this auction. They're right - the pics are actually of a US BMW (from North Carolina) which were doing the rounds a couple of months back and have been reversed for the Irish market. Why? Well, a couple of you reckon the number given is a car dealers - a nice trick to draw in the punters. Sneaky.
